  • The site where this chapel used to be is now known as 121A Swindon Road, Wroughton, following changes to the road layout when the M4 was built. There is now a bungalow on the plot of land, which is still detached from the terraced houses on either side, one at the end of Swindon Road, the other at the beginning of what’s now called Woodland View. On a map or aerial photo you can see where the terraced houses extended their gardens while the chapel did not, so its plot of land is a very distinct shape.
